Carbon Fiber Short Ram Air Intake for a 2010 GT Mustang
- Made for Ozzy Motors.
- Mold Process: Carved Foam
- Layup Process: Wet/Hand
- Ozzy Motors is a small local shop that specializes in taking boring old cars and turning them into racecars! If there is work to be done, they can do it, form a full engine swap to a simple tune up! They specialize in EVOs and WRX’s. This particular Mustang owner needed more carbon fiber in their life!
This 2010 GT Mustang is clean in white, but it just needed some carbon fiber under its hood!
Using the car as a model, we were able to layout the new air intake design to match the throttle body and the air filter.
This is the final result of the hand shaped, custom plug. It’s easy to test fit the plug in place as the carbon part will only be slightly larger.
The layup was performed as a simple wet wrap around the foam plug. The seam was carefully placed on the underside.
This is the part under vacuum as it cured.
Fresh out of the vacuum and sanded flat, the part was checked to fit the filter.
A few layers of high temperature gloss later you have the final part ready for install!
